It is simple logic that God cannot be joined to anything sinful. I think Purgatory is a very beautiful belief:

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight."

Where is Trust in God in that statement? Did not He send His Son? And purgatory is NOT Scriptural and in direct opposition to God's Word.

If one wants to 'feel' they need to do something to earn salvation - they are saying 'Jesus is Not Enough'. Pride cannot reign in heaven - the reason why satan was cast down. And misery wants company.

Christ made it very clear action was required to confirm conversion. Many parables He told criticized saying one believes while acting sinfully. More is required than saying you believe; you must live belief.
